The sharks circling in the waters of fashion are most often metaphorical ones. Not in Adam Kimmel‘s new video. For Dressed for Dinner, Kimmel put magician David Blaine in his finest formalwear—and sent him down to meet Jaws. “It was David’s dream to practice breath holds in the wild with his favorite creatures: great whites,” Kimmel told Style.com. “I don’t think he ever imagined doing it in a tuxedo, but he was a good sport about the whole thing.” To shoot, Kimmel and Blaine spent a week on Guadalupe, a deserted island in the Pacific reachable only by a 24-hour boat ride. Blaine submerged himself 40 feet underwater, and along came the great whites—some as large as 20-feet long. “David is one of the most remarkable people living today,” Kimmel said. “I’m still shocked he made it out of the water without a bite—I mean, the sharks must have passed him for a close inspection at least 300 times.” Menswear connoisseurs would tell you any Kimmel suit is worth at least as many viewings.
